If the Google Account Password is not working it is one of two things. Either you do not have WiFi enabled on the device or your Google Account has 2-Step Verification enabled. To find out about 2-Step Verification, login to your Google account on the PC. Under My Account, there is a section regarding this security feature. Disable it and reboot your phone. Within 20 minutes it should sync to the changes and try again.

On wiping data will my 64 GB internal storage be also wiped clean?

What about my contacts, images, messages, etc.? Are the settings only resetting to the original?

Everything gets wiped away. If you regularly synced your Google Account then items like Contacts, Images, and Videos may be recovered but messages and files will be deleted unless they were saved via Google Drive or another cloud. You could try to remove the SD card and backup that data on your PC, however, most data still saves in internal memory and not on the SD card.
